EDITORS COMMENTS
In this charming photograph, Mrs Gerald Legge, later known as Raine, Countess Spencer and Comtesse de Chambrun, is captured at her home in 12 Chester Street, off Belgrave Square, London, with her two young sons, Rupert and William. The image, published in the Sketch magazine in 1952, showcases the elegant interior of the family residence, adorned with ornate ornaments and tasteful decor. Raine, who was born in 1929, was a British socialite and politician. At the time this photograph was taken, she was married to the Honorable Gerald Humphrey Legge, Viscount Lewisham and later, 9th Earl of Dartmouth. Raine's marriage to Legge was her third, and she would later marry Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956, becoming Princess Consort of Monaco and the mother of Princess Caroline, Princess Stéphanie, and Prince Albert II. In the photograph, Raine exudes a warm and nurturing presence as she sits on a plush armchair, her sons Rupert and William playfully interacting with her. Rupert, born in 1951, and William, born in 1949, are dressed in smart attire, reflecting the refined atmosphere of their home. The image offers a glimpse into the daily life of a prominent British socialite and her young family, providing a window into the past and offering a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era.
